Ok before getting to the heart of this post, let’s talk about how I hate maxi dresses. Well, I did hate maxi dresses, until I realized that they’re not just for warm months. Nothing is more upsetting to me than hot air trapped under a tent of fabric on a summer day, making my nether regions feel like a forest fire. Am I the only one who feels like maxi dresses are some weird puritanical ploy to get women to melt off their private parts? I doubt I am! But it’s Winter now, and there’s a cool breeze outside just waiting to be blown up your long beautiful skirt!
My first fear about wearing a maxi dress was that I may look like Dr Quinn (medicine woman). I was worried that a maxi with booties or boots may make me look like I was straight off the prarie. Then I decided that I might actually be kind of into that, and decided to be the most chic Medicine Woman I could possibly be. Dr Quinn would be proud.
Whether your favorite maxi dress is a super heavy jersey like mine, or it’s a patterned chiffon gown, you can make it work for you. We’re so used to seeing Summertime maxis with flip flops that it takes a big adjustment in our brain to think about wearing them with boots, but that’s what makes it cool ya’ll! Only wearing long dresses in summer is just like any other tired old fashion rule. It needs to be broken, and when it is it almost always looks bad ass. So here’s how you wear your favorite maxi in the Winter: put it on your body, throw on some shoes that will keep your feet warm, and enjoy. That’s all you gotta do. Let me tell you, this winter breeze is just too good to miss out on!
